If I setup a streamer to follow a particular account
and if a normally formatted status is sent to that account
(eg. status=’@realdonaldtrump ты опасный шут’)
then as expected I see that status flow in on the data stream.
if however the status is formatted as
status=’.@realdonaldtrump ты опасный шут’
then nothing appears on the stream.
Users do still often use the “dotted” addressing form and if it can’t get through, it breaks my app which relies on the streamer.
